Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 1982. (53 minutes) How do Theosophists respond to war and violence? The question may seem unnecessary as the principle of ahimsa or nonviolence is deeply rooted in spiritual traditions. The answer is not so clear when we go beyond the abstract realm of pure ideas and examine real life situations. Different people respond variously to the same set of circumstances. What is a nonviolent response to violence? How does nonviolence apply in...

Wheaton, Illinois: Theosophical Society in America, 2017.

Believing passionately in the myth of Zep Tepi, a time when enlightened semi-divine beings shared wisdom with early Egyptians and taught that all things are One, he reintroduced this spiritual philosophy for the betterment of his people....
